Get proper clearance from Essex, PCB instructs Kaneria

Karachi:

The Pakistan Cricket Board has informed Danish Kaneria in no uncertain terms that he won't be selected for Test matches unless he fulfills the requirements of the integrity committee.


A board official confirmed that in a latest e-mail sent to Kaneria he had been told clearly he was not meeting the requirements of the board.

"We have told him that the letter from the chief executive of Essex county that he sent us last month does not fulfill our requirements and he needs to do more to get clearance," the official said.

The board had asked Kaneria a veteran of 61 Tests to submit a clearance letter from his old county Essex stating he was no longer required in the case filed against his county teammate, Mervyn Westfield by the Essex police in a spot-fixing case.

Kaneria and Westfield were questioned by the Essex police as part of investigations into allegations that a Pro-40 match that Essex played against Durham in September 2009 was fixed by them.

The Essex police after questioning Kaneria last year said they had found no evidence against him but they filed charges of corruption and fraud against Westfield who is now facing a criminal case in court.

"That is what we wanted him from him but he instead sent us an old letter from the Essex chief executive which just said they had not hired Kaneria for the 2010 season because of financial problems," the official said.
